NJIT's Siani Magruder ends season with all-conference all-star nod: College notebook


New Jersey Institute of Technology senior defender Siani Magruder was named to the America East Conference women’s soccer second team Friday.

Magruder, a 2018 Egg Harbor Township High School graduate and a two-time first-team Press All-Star, earned the accolade for the second time in her career.

She helped lead a Highlanders’ backline that notched nine shutouts (7-0-2). They allowed the second fewest goals (six) and had the second-best save percentage (.900) in conference play.

Last week, Magruder played all 90 minutes at back in NJIT’s 1-0 win over Hartford. She played all 110 minutes in an American East Conference first-round loss to New Hampshire. The score was 0-0, and New Hampshire advanced on penalty kicks.
